Ace director S.Narayan's films have always remained the most awaited projects for Kannada film fans. Narayan's track record of making some remarkable films in Kannada has given him an extra edge. He puts in lot of efforts to make good films with stars or fresh faces. His last two films Cheluvina Chiththaara and Chanda have become block busters and now the focus is centred around his next film Chaithrada Chandrama. Narayan has completed this film which is now slated for release on September 4. He is launching his son Pankaaj through this film. Amoolya who made a sensational debut in the film Cheluvina Chiththaara will be the heroine of this film.
S.Narayan organised a press meet recently to introduce his son Pankaaj to the media. All the artistes and technicians of the film were present. Narayan has taken the responsibility of writing the film, doing its musical work and also directing it. The film's artistes Pankaaj, Amoolya, Pallakki Radhakrishna, Veena Sundar, Vijay Jetty were present along with cameraman Renu and dance director Malur Srinivas. All the artistes and technicians shared their experience of acting in this film.
Pankaaj disclosed that he was not aware that he would be donning the hero's film in this film even a day before the shooting had started. "I was very curious to know who was the hero of this film. My father did not answer many of my questions in this regard. But when my father revealed to me that I would be the lead actor in the film just when the film unit was leaving to Srinagar to shoot the songs. And I was really flabbergasted at that moment. But then while participating in the shooting, I was conscious that a big responsibility has been placed on me. I just followed the instructions of the director, dance director of the film. I was guided by instructions of senior technicians in the film and I was also encouraged by my co-artistes," said Pankaaj.
Amoolya said that it was because of Narayan sir that she had attained such a huge popularity in the film industry. "When Narayan sir called me I was extremely happy. I have done what the director had told me. My first film was a silver jubilee hit and I will just hope that this film will also turn out to be a block buster," said Amoolya.
Speaking after all the artistes and technicians spoke, director S. Narayan said that the film was the toughest and most challenging film of his career. He had shot the film in Srinagar as th story demanded such a place. And a major portion of the shooting was done in Bangalore. "The artistes and technicians of the film have done a wonderful job. Pankaaj's performance has exceeded my expectations and I am sure that this film would be remembered for him. And Amoolya has once again proved that she is a good actress. I am thankful for Veena Sundar for accepting this film despite some personal problems. She has delivered a top line performance in the film. The song album has been doing very well in the market," said Narayan.
